Tobin, Casey; Duncan, Jenny
Alabama Counseling Association Journal, v33 n1 p20-23 Spr 2007
Peer victimization is an all too common occurrence in schools throughout the United States, affecting millions of adolescents every year. Involvement in peer victimization carries devastating consequences that can last a lifetime. Recent research indicates males and females engage in different forms of victimization, with males displaying more overt forms of aggression and females participating in relational attacks. The purpose of this review of literature is to explore the factors that may contribute to peer victimization among adolescent females, and to ascertain the psychological and social repercussions of this behavior.
